Why Choose a Geothermal Heating System? Let’s take a look at all the advantages of installing a Geothermal System for your home, commercial or industrial heating and cooling needs.
The Benefits of Geothermal Systems
With great efficiency comes great energy cost savings. This is the number one reason people consider geothermal systems. By using the earth’s thermal properties we unlock a free source of energy that will never expire. Geothermal systems are the most efficient home heating solution providing three to four units of heating energy, which equals an efficiency of 300% to 400%. Even the most efficient conventional home heating systems are only rated at about 98% efficient.
Low Operating Costs
For the Vancouver marketplace we see energy cost savings of up to 70% for customers using geothermal systems. Geothermal systems can also supplement or provide all the heat needed for domestic hot water, hot tubs, and swimming pools.
Geothermal systems eliminate the combustion of fossil fuels on site and dramatically lower the need to generate power. Geothermal systems greatly reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses and the environmental damage associated with nonrenewable resource extraction.
Comfort and Consistency
Because geothermal systems use the relatively stable temperature of the earth as an energy source, you are assured of constant, even heating in winter, and better humidity control in the summer. Geothermal systems eliminate the need for exhaust venting, reducing the number of penetrations in the building envelope and improving weather tightness. With all your energy savings you can buy more comfortable furniture too.
No flame, no flue, no odours, no risk from carbon monoxide. Just safe, reliable operation year after year.
Ground source heat pumps can provide any combination of forced-air heating, radiant in-floor heating, domestic hot water, and air conditioning all from the same unit. From houses to office buildings to community swimming pools, and everything in between, geothermal systems can be designed to provide efficient heating and cooling solutions.
The completely self-contained, indoor equipment does not need a noisy, unsightly outside condensing unit. Geothermal systems are quiet and discrete.
